With the introduction of the compulsory National Living Wage in April there are changes also in place this October with new rates for under 25’s. We thought it would be timely to issue an alert to make sure you’re aware of the changes. Keep the below rates on your radar and ensure this October employees receive the pay rise.
16-17 year olds increase 13p to £4.00 per hour
18-20 year olds increase 25p to £5.55 per hour
21-24 year olds increase 25p to £6.95 per hour
Apprentices will increase 10p to £3.40 per hour
At this stage there are no plans to increase the National Living wage for over 25’s, and this will stick at £7.20.
